Whitburn Partnership Centre

Whitburn Partnership Centre

Currently under construction this Centre is located in the heart of Whitburn.

Partnership working brings together a range of council services and partner organisations providing a "one stop shop" in the heart of local communities. Delivered throughout West Lothian, each facility breathes new life into prominent, historic buildings or deliverers purpose-built, multi-functional buildings with maximised accommodation and improved public access but also drive efficiency in overall service delivery (shared reception, offices, rooms, staff, etc.)

West Lothian Council has Partnership Centres across West Lothian, including Livingston, Armadale, Bathgate, Blackburn, Broxburn, East Calder, Fauldhouse, Linlithgow and on completion Whitburn.

The first Partnership Centre in West Lothian opened at Strathbrock in Broxburn in 2005 and the model of partnership centres has since been followed by other local authorities across Scotland. 

There have been clear and measurable benefits to the West Lothian community.  Access to a variety of services from one location within each settlement is considerably more efficient in terms of providing and receiving services thus, ensuring our citizens receive a comprehensive and contemporary customer experience.

The meeting provided an update on the project and associated issues listed below:

  • Timber hoarding will be in place on the front street, but open on other sides allowing public to see in.
